I was just offered a position as hostess at Flagg Ranch. However, I think I would prefer to work at Jackson Lake Lodge, but I can't be considered for a position there unless I officially decline the position I've been offered, and there's no guarantee I would get a position at JLL.
Does anyone have any advice or info that would help me decide? The main thing I am wary about FR is that they have new management, so I don't know what it will be like given that there have been a lot of bad experiences in the past. Now that GTLC is running the ranch, do you think it will be more like it is down at JLL and the other resorts in that area?
Any info about the general differences between the two areas? I also like that JLL is a little less remote and closer to Jackson.
Any info would be helpful! I want to try to decide in the next day or two.
Jackson lake lodge is ok, they have a fairly nice pub, laundry, the housing is noisier that others that I've been in because of the thin, thin, very thin walls. Head phones are a must @ night. They have a shuttle that goes to Jackson daily. I imagine since they're running flag that there will be similar there too.
I got offered a position at Flagg last summer but turned it down to work closer to the tetons. I would def go with Jackson Lake Lodge. Their staff of employees is huge and it is closer to jackson and the tetons. After reading a bunch of posts on here about Flagg ranch i decided not to work there. Jackson Lake seemed much nicer.
